Its been a while since I have been active in this forum, but HDTV, which I have held off on for some time, is catching my eye. Currently on my setup I'm using a Panasonic 32" Superflat TV. I was looking at the Panasonic PT-53WX53, and it has a very nice image from my initial viewing, but a few things that have caused me to questions this set: 1). I've read in this forum that it won't do 720p natively, but will rather convert it to 1080i. I want to be able to do both modes natively, and not have to convert on to the other, because both have their advantages and disadvantages and I want both. So is it true, this set won't display it? 2).This set has DVI-HDCP, but now there is a newer HDMI-HDCP interface (keep in mind I've been out of it for a while). If the difference simply the ability to transfer audio too, or is there more to it? 3.) I hear yes and no on whether this set has 3:2 pulldown. Whenever I get a new DVD player I will make sure it has 3:2 pulldown as well as progressive scan. So I wont really need it on the HDTV, but just want to clear it up. 4). This set is supposed to have 850 lines of resolution, so it wouldn't display a true 1080 lines of resolution anyhow right? I'm looking for one that will. The price is nice at $1,699 and less if the right deal is struck, but the 720p issue is enough to steer me away. I'm looking for features, the 53" size max (48" min), all displays (480p/720p/1080i), and stunning post convergence/calibration picture. This post is getting a little lengthy so I'll conclude it by asking for feedback and alternative RPTVs only (no $$$ for good plasma or DLP sets yet). Thanks!
